Stampin Up Playful Pets Get Well Card

 Happy Friday!  Today I have another get well card to share.  The last one was fancy, this one is whimsical! The recipient of this cards loves cats and she has a really fun personality, so I pulled out the Playful Pets Designer Paper (DSP) which is perfect for her!  Here is my card:

I don't have the corresponding stamp set (Pampered Pets) but that is no problem when I have this adorable DSP that has lots of fun pictures of cats and dogs for all of us animal lovers.   Check out the fun patterns in this collection below!

Here are the instructions on how I made this card from the card base to the top:
  • Cardbase: Basic Black cardstock cut to  8 1/2 x 5 1/2", scored in half, folded, crease with bone folder
  • Cut pawprint/heart page of Playful Pets DSP  to 4 x 5 1/4", adhere with Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  • Cut Basic Black cardstock to 5 1/4 x 1",  punch with Banners Pick A Punch
  • Ink the sentiment from Healing Hugs Stamp Set with Versamark ink, stamp onto right side of the black banner
  • Apply White Emboss Powder directly on the Versamark stamped sentiment, shake off excess, and then heat emboss with Heat Tool
  • Adhere the embossed banner in the center of the card with liquid glue
  • Die cut Real Red cardstock with the swirl die from the Painted Labels Die
  • Punch out the cat image (or image of your choice) with the 2" Circle Punch
  • Glue the cat image in the center of the Real Red Swirl with liquid glue
  • Adhere the Red layer with Stampin Dimensionals over the black banner to the left of the sentiment
  • Add a heart from the Playful Pets Trinkets for a little extra specialness! Adhere with a Mini Glue Dot.
Note that I use Multipurpose Liquid Glue, however you can easily use Stampin' Seal instead. I just happen to prefer the liquid glue as it allows me a little wiggle time to straighten the paper before sealing.  If you do use the liquid glue, just remember a little bit goes a long way!

For the inside of the card, I cut a layer of Whisper White cardstock to  5 1/4 x 4" and adhered that with liquid glue.  I inked the sentiment from Healing Hugs Stamp Set with Real Red Ink and stamped in the center. Then I added a little strip of the paw print paper (approx  5 1/4 x 1/2") at the bottom for a little decoration.

Here is a close up of the card so you can see the layers better.  I just love this little cat licking his paw without a care in the world and hope it makes the recipient of this card chuckle too.

Stamping Up Healing Hugs Get Well Card

 Happy Hump Day! Thank you to everyone who read my post yesterday for the Inkin' Crew blog hop! It was fun to participate in the blog hop and I was happy to hear so many liked the non-traditional colors for my fall card. 

Today I am sharing a Get Well card with the Healing Hugs Stamp Set. This stamp set has such nice sentiments for wishing someone well and has a beautiful rose image.   Here is the card I made:




Here is how I made the card from the base card to the top:

  • Base card: Rococo Rose cardstock 8 1/2 x 5" scored in half and folded. 
  • DSP:  In Good Taste cut to 5 x 4 1/4, adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  • Whisper White cardstock cut with die from Ornate Layers Dies
  • Stamp "Get Well Soon" sentiment  from Healing Hugs Stamp Set on bottom right corner of white ornate layer with Rococo Rose ink then adhere white layer with Stampin Dimensionals
  • Stamp leaves image with Old Olive ink two times onto scrap Whisper White cardstock, fussy cut them out
  • Stamp Rose image with Rich Razzleberry ink onto scrap Whisper White and fussy cut out
  • Glue leaves onto white layer with liquid glue (to allow adjustments before drying)
  • Adhere Rose on top of the leaves with Stampin Dimensionals
  • Add rhinestones for extra bling!
Here is a close up picture of how the rose is assembled.  Fussy cutting the leaves and rose images allowed me to make the rose more 3D.  




For the inside of the card, I cut a layer of Whisper White (5 1/2 x 4) and stamped the corners with the leaves (Old Olive) and rose (Rococo Rose) before adhering it with liquid glue. 



This is one of my favorite cards I've made.  I love the fanciness of it! I was happy with how the Rich Razzleberry and Rococo Rose colors worked together. This is a very feminine card, but this stamp set also has several simple leaf images too if you wanted to make it less feminine.  



   Please let me know how you like this card!  Before you go check out what's happening!

Stampin Up Fall Frenzy Blog Hop with Amy's Inkin' Krew

 Hi Stampers! Today I am excited to participate in the blog hop with Amy's Inkin' Krew!! The theme is Fall Frenzy.  

 It's kind of hard to be thinking about fall when its so hot here in South Carolina! As I was browsing my newest products I ordered from the brand new Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog, I happened upon the blue and green pattern of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and it inspired my color theme for this card!  I love blues and greens together! These are prevelant colors here in the coastal community where I live.  We have lush green trees and grass from the frequent rains we get here and blue skies and waters.  Also, we tend to decorate here with coastal colors so its common to see blue and green pumpkins here!  Here is my card:

GatherTogether1BloxieGirlStampinUp


One of the neat things about Stampin Up is they coordinate everything for us. On the package of the DSP, it lists all the colors used in the paper to make it easy to identify the coordinating colors. So right away, I knew I would be using Pretty Peacock, Mint Macaroon and Balmy Blue!  

I used Pretty Peacock cardstock for my card base (8 1/2 x 5 1/2", scored and folded in half). I ran a layer of Whisper White cardstock (4x 5 1/4") with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered that with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then I used a strip of the blue and green plaid paper (1 3/4" by 5 1/4") to build my collection of leaves and pumpkins.  I used Seaside Spray cardstock and ink for the largest leaf, Mint Macaroon cardstock and ink for the pumpkin, and Pretty Peacock cardstock for the two unstamped leaves.  All of these were die cut with the dies from Gathered Leaves Dies. 

The sentiment "Season of Thanks" is from the Gather Together stamp set and was stamped with Pretty Peacock ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then die cut with the second smallest rectangle die of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  For a little extra fanciness, I punched out the green sprigs with the Sprig punch using the new Green Foil Sheets. I assembled these together using a mixture of Stampin' Dimensionals and liquid glue for a layered, three dimensional effect.  You can see this a little better with this close up picture:

GatherTogether2BloxieGirlStampinUp


For the inside of the card, I used a layer of Whisper White cardstock (4 x 5 1/4") and stamped the corners with the large leaf in Seaside Spray ink and the pumpkin in Mint Macaroon ink and adhered it in with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I've mentioned it before in my previous blog posts, but I love the flexibility that the liquid glue offers. It allows me to wiggle the paper just a little bit to make sure its straight and lined up properly before I press it down for a good seal.  Here is a picture of the inside:

You can watch my video for more detail on how I assembled this card together. It's a quick and to the point video with subtitles so you can play it anytime without disturbing those around you.  I have made a few videos using this format and it seems to be working out well so I hope to making several more soon using this same style.  If the video doesnt appear below you can also access the video by clicking here





Making this card was really fun and even though I used non-traditional colors for a fall theme, it has put me in the mood for fall to arrive!!  All products used in this card are at the bottom of this post.  Be sure to scroll down to check out everyone else's Fall Frenzy design!!  Click the "Next" button or follow the list.
